Episode #41: Drawing And Coloring

1/14/2020
Hello again! This is Charlie O’Shields, back with another episode of Sketching Stuff! Though I paint with watercolor and draw each day, I’ve always looked at my sketchbook habit as fun playtime. And I’m not making paintings, I’m making drawings, or more accurately doodles that I then color with watercolor. This has brought me so much joy over these past […]

11/19/2019
Hello once more! It’s Charlie O’Shields, back with another episode of Sketching Stuff!

Episode #32: Drawing Inspiration

9/10/2019
I love drawing, but when I was younger, I failed to do it each and every day. In fact, I took a 20 year unintentional break from drawing.
